Survey of Recent Literature Relevant to Optimizing the Benefits of Neighborhood Youth Corps Projects for Rural Youth.
Miles, Guy H.
Recent literature concerning rural youth in the North Central states is reviewed in the text and a 291-item bibliography is included. The scope of the study is the following regions: Lower Great Lakes, Upper Great Lakes, Corn Belt, and Central Plains. Rural population has been declining as farms increase in size, making it more difficult for young people to begin farming without substantial inheritances. Outmigration of the rural population has brought social changes which affect the youth of the areas in terms of education and vocational preparation. Rural America has not kept pace with urban America in the use of federal training programs. The Neighborhood Youth Corps must be adapted to the unique conditions of rural areas. (MS)
